mitch mcconnell attend and house speaker john boehner declined each and every time. it's interesting, he's not against attending state dinners. >> can't smoke and don't serve merlot. >> there's president bush, attending a state dinner during the bush presidency. >> he had no problem going when he liked who was in the white house, just had a problem going when it was president barack obama, it appears. >> can we show this graphic. mitch mcconnell went. let's show it. it was a good one. the germans went. they love their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interru
in a seemingly telling moment with john boehner. the first lady seemed to roll her eyes in response to the speaker, before turning back to her meal. no word on what boehner was saying. maybe she didn't like the food. >> the cameras catch everything, don't they? >> she is just dividing those two men right there. and it's not a party unless there's a photo bomb. >> we love this. look at this mug. former president bill clinton, as he's known to do, stealing the show. this time, from kelly clarkson. this has gone viral. people are tweeting and posting it. and as you can imagine, attaching their own varied punchlines. >>> and a photo bomb from the first lady's brother, craig robinson. you see him popping his head behind the president. >> and leave it to the teenagers, malia obama gets in front of her sister and a professional photographer, during what was a tender moment between her parents. >> and chuck schumer wasn't going to be left out of the photo bombing. there he is, during beyonce's "star-spangled banner." ♪ yeah ♪ get a feeling that i never, never, never, never had before
screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling.
by the senate failing to pass a budget. speaker boehner's office released inknow graphic about what could have been accomplished since the last budget passed on april 29, 2009. it clouded 179 round trips to the moon. circumnavigating the globe 73 times. leading senate republicans say it's time for the senate to step up. it has been four year since the senate acted on a budget. in fact, if you believe this. many of you have ipads. ipads didn't exist the last time the senate passed a budget. >> the senate majority didn't say no but he didn't fully embrace the house deal either. >> i'm glad that they sent us up a clean -- they are going to send us a clean debt ceiling bill. the other stuff on it, we'll approach it when we need to. glad we're not facing a crisis here in a matter of a few days. >> at the white house, jay carney signaled president obama would sign it. >> it still has toover come concerns expressed by member of the hus and the senate before it passes both chambers to reach the president's desk. if it does and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of bill beco
pass a budget really doesn't do anything. it also violates the so-called boehner rule, which requires any bill to have cuts equal to the rise of the debt ceiling. republicans are making up for this by saying congress will get paid -- will not get paid unless the senate passes a budget. even republican congressman darryl issa knows it's a violation of the 27th amendment not to pay congress. when told about the plan, issa said that's unconstitutional. wants a paycheck. now republicans are claiming the plan will just withhold pay for congress. so all of them will get paid, no matter what. what is it? it's just a big sham. it's just a big game. nancy pelosi rejected the plan as a gimmick. she's correct. this gimmick is the only thing republicans have up their sleeves right now. john boehner told everyone two years ago the country would not default on its debt. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the united states would be a financial disaster? >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country, but
us on the brink in the immediate future. >> john boehner has been tweeting out a picture that i think is interesting, and writing among other things, will senate democrats ever pass a budget. in the four years since senate democrats passed a budget, you could make 179 round trips to the moon. at the same time, chuck schumer says the senate is going to pass a budget so andy, are the democrats going to call the republicans' bluff? >> well, the question that i want to know and what will be playing out this week is whether john boehner's plan, this is a gamble for house speaker john boehner. there are members of the republican caucus in the house who don't want to raise the debt ceiling at all and don't even think a three-month extension of the debt ceiling as a ploy to put the political pressure on the senate democrats to pass a budget, they may not even vote for this. so he has his work cut out for him to make sure that his caucus or at least the vast majority of it is on board for this. and for the senate democrats, if this three-month extension passes, it does move the spotlight, it d
ceiling brsh according to speaker boehner, the ends justify the means. in a statement yesterday, boehner asserted the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real, but so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. it was a response to this stern warning from the president on monday. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. >> if the tenor of the president's last press conference of his first term is any indication about what he expects in his second term, prepare for a bond-style showdown as the government barrels towards its borrowing limit. that said, there might exist a solution that would allow congress to do what it does best, which is to say nothing at all, and still save the economy. this do nothing approach was floated by senate minority leader mitch mcconnell in 2011, and president obama gave it a hat tip yesterday. >> they want to put the responsibility on me to raise the debt ceiling, i'm happy to take it.
's a reaction from speaker boehner's office. house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that. what's your response to that? is that passing the buck? >> there's plenty of passing the buck that goes on. there is an effort to create pressure in the house. and i believe we can force a vote on the house floor, if necessary. and, again, the american people will be a critical part of that effort. >> universal background checks. overwhelming support for that. is that a good start for congress in your opinion? >> it is probably the best thing we can do at this particular point in time. when 40% of the guns that are purchased in this country are not subject to a background check, it absolutely floors the american people. even members of the nra, when they were polled recently, were under the impression that everyone has a criminal background check. so there are many thousands upon thousands of people in this country who illegally have guns because there isn't a universal background check. >> congresswoman, appreciate yo
boehner with the flags that flew over the capital during the inaugural ceremony. it seems like during some of the post inaugural address interviews, they did not give a hundred percent embrace. but they seem to feel the president was magnanimous and there was not the bipartisan -- the partisan bickering, at least not today. tomorrow is another day. >> right. we'll see when they start go earning. but the transition of power does matter. the fact that we transition in this way that people are -- i mean, my favorite two shot, so far, my favorite image, is that that included beyoncyonce stand near paul ryan and there was this vision of them together. this is fun. this is kind of american politics and culture, you know, crossing these lines. and will it hold? perhaps not. but for a moment, it is a recognition that we don't have violent military coups in this country. we have a peaceful transition of power. >> you also saw there chairman frank as the reference in terms of his speech where he talked about the struggles that had gone from selma to stone wall and all. on the program, myrlie evers,
the table and weren't saying this is what we have. now it's up to john boehner and his team to coax out of this conference, who is very skeptical of him because of the deal he did on the tax rates and they look at him askance and what do you want to do, obamacare, the health care law and other things that might include giving the president a debt ceiling increase until the end of his term if he's willing to agree in big changes in entitlement programs. they've got to come up with something. >> megyn: they have to come up with a game plan. we saw with the fiscal cliff negotiations the end of the year they were divided and boehner couldn't sort of corral his house republicans to be on the same page and so now he's trying to do that and to get reelected speaker, he says i'm going to listen to you, i'll be your choice. now, the question, chris, whether you think these house republicans can speak as one and can find, you know, their one mission. you know, who you are and what you stand for. what my parents used to say to me. i say to my kids, who are you and what do you stand for and they're
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people
't do it. >> if john boehner and mitch mcconnell think they can come up with a plan that somehow meets their criteria they set, they are free on go ahead and try. >> republicans still believe the president will blink and they will be able to meg officiate on the debt ceiling. you about want to find a way out of getting boxed in on the debt ceiling themselves, believing a fight over funding the government is a much better political fight for their party. here's congresswoman marsha blackburn yesterday. >> i think there is a way to avoid default. if it requires shutting down certain portions of the government, let's look at that. >> yesterday the president sounded almost resign to the idea a government shutdown is probably coming up. >> if the republicans in congress made a decision they want to shouldn't down the government in order to get their way, then they have the -- votes at least in the house of representatives probably to do that. i think that would be a mistake. and it would be profoundly damaging to our economy. >> once again, what the white house was trying to signal on debt
on the floor of the house and the senate. and speaker boehner's spokesperson said we'll be happy to look at any proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back to you, no, over to you. neither one of them -- and this is what makes the nra's bizarre decision that they did today, the risk -- right now, harry re reid's the best friend they've got, and if they figure out a way to alienate senate democrats who have carried their water before with the stunt they pulled today with this bizarre web ad, they are going to live to regret it long term. >> one other thing about the nra, wayne lapierre said in part, barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies want to bully you, strip you of your second amendment freedoms. i warned you that day is coming, now it's here. then a call for greater membership, which is exactly what's happening. nia malika, the battle is now joined, not a battle either
. majority leader harry reid and speaker john boehner appear to be in a game of legislative chicken. boehner's spokesman released a statement after the president's speech saying, simply, house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that. reid, of course, who has already said the senate will only consider legislation that can pass the house said in a very vague, carefully-worded statement yesterday, quote, i am committed to ensuring that the senate will consider can legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. reid, of course, has home state politics to worry about, as well as keeping a number of red state democrats in line. many of them are up for re-election in 2014. potentially vulnerable. montana senator max baucus responded to the senate in a statement, quote, before passing new laws, we need a debate that respects responsible, law-abiding gun owners in montana instead of a one-size-fits-all directives from washington. joe manchin said, quote, i'm di
boehner, the house is squarely going to deliver all of this right at harry reid's feet. what do senate democrats who are pro-gun do? and is that the easiest achilles heel for those on the right to target them? >> well, that's exactly right, thomas. i think the biggest problem for the president and his gun agenda will be harry reid and all the senate democrats up for reelection next time around. i think what john boehner and the house republicans are going to say is we'll take this up as soon as the senate passes it. and i would guarantee you that it's going to be very difficult to get this through the senate. senator reid has not come out four square behind the president's proposals. my guess is he won the -- his last election chiefly because he got the nra's endorsement. he's not going to necessarily want to turn his back. because if he does turn his back on the nra. and not just about the nra. i would say the nra has done a very good job of delegitimatizing itself with these ads. but that doesn't mean there's not a huge power of gun owners in a loot of these states, especially in red
in chicago, here i'd get shot. bipartisan outreach will be so successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar ve
, but second that it shouldn't be one for one cuts, you know, boehner used to say that, the house proposal doesn't say that, dollar in cutting for every dollar in raising the debt ceiling. >> would you support a short-term measure to force you to pass a budget? >> i think it should be longer because we don't want to play fiscal cliff every three months. but it's a positive step. on the budget -- >> on the spending reform measures, you never get a clean debt ceiling raise. >> yes, you should. >> that's not a question of whether you should. but historically it's not been the case. >> mitch mcconnell proposed it two years ago and we passed it. but let me say this on the budget. we democrats have always intended to do a budget this year. for two reasons. first, it is not true that we haven't had budget control in effect over the last several years. the budget control act of 2011 put rigid spending cuts that are in effect -- that were in effect last year. we cut $1 trillion. we didn't like it. it was much more of a republican type proposal than ours. in effect, it expires this year. so we need
pay the bills they've already wracked up. >> house speaker john boehner has made it clear that he is eager to avoid a first-ever default on u.s. obligations, even if some republicans are not afraid of that idea. >>> secretary of state clinton will testify next wednesday before lawmakers about the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. clinton had been scheduled to testify last month but she suffered a concussion when she fell during an illness. she was later hospitalized with a blood clot in her head. >>> breaking news overnight. a authorities in philadelphia are offering $10,000 for information leading to the safe return of a 5-year-old girl. nalya robertson was last seen yesterday morning. that's when surveillance cameras saw her leaving her school with a woman wearing muslim-style clothing. an amber alert was sounded when it was discovered she was missing. >>> and the hero of the newtown, connecticut, school shooting attack was being honored. victoria soto died when trying to shield her students from that gunman. now, her hometown is going to name a school in
position unreasonable here. >> pelley: speaker john boehner said the republican-controlled house will pass what he called "responsible legislation." but he said the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without cutting government spending. we have learned tonight that former cycling champion lance armstrong is in discussions to return a part of the millions of dollars that his team received from the u.s. postal service. and he has indicated a willingness to testify against others involved in illegal doping. armstrong's u.s. postal sponsorship prohibited doping. last year armstrong was stripped of his titles after an investigation found systemic drug use on the team. the associated press is reported tonight that in an interview today with oprah winfrey, armstrong admitted that he used performance-enhancing drugs. recently we spoke to travis tygart the head of the. is anti-doping agency in his only interview for the showtime program "60 minutes" sports it was tygart who made the case against armstrong. some of the words that you used in outlining your case wereck "drug poss
. >> reporter: the republican house speaker, john boehner, said he will wait to see what the democratically controlled senate can pass, and even that scott, won't be easy. there are a number of western and southern democrats who have a long history of voting against gun control measures. >> pelley: nancy, thank you. now to that developing hostage story. at least three americans are among the oil field workers being held by islamic terrorists in eastern algeria. the obama administration says tonight it will take all steps required to deal with the situation. david martin has the late- breaking details. >> reporter: the americans are being held with dozens of other western hostages at this natural gas complex in a remote corner of algeria. a joint venture involving algeria, norway and b.p., it was attacked early this morning by militants claiming to be members of al qaeda. defense secretary panetta learned of the attack while on a visit to italy. >> by all indications, this is a terrorist act, and the united states strongly condemns these kinds of terrorist acts. it is a very serious matter w
% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, a 9% approval rating. i wonder what lens they are looking through. >> well i think that's the problem. i think that's the problem with ted cruz's performance yesterday, michael steele because that is not what i think we're going to see down the road road, the new republican party is going to look like. >> i think coming on the heels of the inauguration in the next few weeks, what the american people are looking for is that rodney king moment that little bit of light where we can get along and begin to get things done. i think to joe's point, and to yours, mika yesterday ted cruz was sending out another call taking a different tone and direction than the one the american people are expecting beginning in this atmosphere with the inauguration, the excitement of that. people expect the partisanship to get to the water's edge and stop and begin something fresh. >> by the way, this is not for us -- this is not for the republicans to be nice. >> no exactly. >> this isn't about being nice. this i
they will pass three-month temporary increase to give them time to finalize a budget. speaker boehner said before there is long-term debt limit increase a budget should be passed that cut spending. the house g.o.p. whip hinted at the strategy. >> our hope is to pass something early so the senate can take action as well. i wouldn't be jeopardizingor economy there. it shows it's a rational, put us on a better path. and i would hi the american public could support it and the senate as well. >> fox news poll reveals 83% think government spending is out of control. up five points from two years ago. 69% of those surveyed say the debt limit should only be raised after major cuts. aides to the number two senate republicans does not support giving president obama a blank check but told "houston chronicle" editorial board, "we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our debt." he went on to say "i tell you unequivocally we are not going to default." cornyn notes there will be tax revenue coming in and said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government to secure the long-ter
leverage, right? that was something that boehner tried to do with his whole plan "b" during the tax thing. and when he couldn't do that, then suddenly he lost all leverage. so that's the name of the game number one. and then the second part is what david was talking about there, which is they are trying to figure out how to basically move away from the debt limit as a part of this argument, and that's -- it's easier said than done. they know where they should be having this spending argument, and that is with funding the government. whether they can get the rank and file to that place is another story. and that's why the white house's strategy is go ahead and pass something. you've got that whole dollar-for-dollar spending cuts to debt limit, go ahead and give it a shot. see how you come up with it because the white house doesn't believe that boehner can pass a bill that even meets his own standard of dollar for dollar. >> and i would just add, i think the view among top republicans, republican leaders, is that the well is so poisoned by president obama. i mean, this goes beyond, you know
. >> greta: are you going to speak to speaker boehner? >> of course. have you said anything to him at all so far? >> yes, we have and i think, i think they're going to wait to see what obama does, and i've talked with other of my colleagues, what's going on and there's a general consensus that if he steps over that line, that something has to be done. you cannot-- it's not like he's abraham lincoln, we're not at civil war. >> greta: the line i understand for executive orders on gun control, is that the line? >> no, the line is when you cross from administrative executive orders which deal with his office. >> greta: okay. >> and pass legislation during executive order. >> greta: suppose he says he's going to ban assault weapons with executive order. >> you can't do that, that's against the constitution, the constitution is very clear. >> greta: what would be your first step if he did that. >> i think we outlined multiple avenues. it's defending the constitution in any ways we can legally and that process has many different avenues. we're willing to take those to defend the constitution. i thi
digits. house speaker john boehner's report card is especially bad. his personal rating upside down by 19 points. while the democratic party has a net positive rating the republican party's negative rating of 49% is basically at its -- near the all-time high. only one other time has it ever been higher. it is the all-time high during obama's presidency. just 26% see the party in a positive light. the gop has lost the most ground in this last poll with self-described republicans. the tea party by the way has its lowest rating ever if you will. positive views of the tea party have dropped to just 23%. as the democrats haggle about the best strategy now for pushing gun control measures through congress, vice president biden promised the u.s. conference of mayors on thursday that the white house will not let up. >> we're going to take this fight to the halls of congress, go around the country making our case, and let the voices of the american people be heard. >> but biden said he has no illusions about how hard that fight will be and emphasized the proposal, quote, isn't just about guns. our
. >> if john boehner and mitch mcconnell think that they can come up with a plan that somehow meets their criteria that they've set for why they will -- when they will raise the debt ceiling, they are free to go ahead and try. jon: chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live on capitol hill now. how are some of the top republicans responding to president obama on this debt ceiling issue? >> reporter: well, jon, republicans are clearly uncomfortable with prominent democrats already talking about a tax increase when you consider the fiscal cliff deal raised taxes and every worker with a payroll tax hiring expiring and raised taxes on upper income americans even further, check your pay stub. a leading republican says responding to the president what's critical is getting spending under control. >> it's a compelling message saying we ned to pay the bills we've racked up. of it messes the whole point again. think of it in terms of a credit card. in you have a son or daughter who exceeds the limit, the first thing you do is rip up the card, the second thing you do is you say yo
he did play a friendly round of golf with house speaker john boehner in 2011. >> i like speaker boehner personally. when we went out and played golf, we had a great time. >> reporter: but mr. obama was quick to add it didn't help to solve the budget impasse. will things be any different when the president begins his second term next week? he seemed to hint they might be. >> now that my girls are older, they don't want to spend as much time with me anyway, aisle probably be calling around to look for somebody to play cards with me or something because i'm getting kind of lonely in this big house. maybe a whole bunch of members of the house republican congress want to come over and socialize more. >> reporter: and if they don't -- >> remember, barack obama has over 50% public approval rating. congress is around 17% on a good day. so the blame here may not be on the president. he seems pretty well liked in the united states. >> he might become a party animal? >> that's right. >> look. in the words of a great old movie line, what we have here is a failure to co
: at the luncheon which followed a more bipartisan tone. speaker of the house john boehner presented the president with a gift and good wish. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flag that flew over this battalion of democracy today to president barack obama and vice president joe biden, and to you gentlemen i say, congratulations, and godspeed. >> reporter: the most poignant picture of the day was this the president going inside from the west front of the capitol, pausing and turning for one last look down the vast expanse of the national mall. another thing he thought he might not see, some daylight on the debt limit fight. republicans said monday they would vote tomorrow to raise the debt limit for three months that delays at least for a while another showdown on the debt which could result in closing down the government. and in just three weeks we get the second act of the president's inaugural address, his state of the union speech. there he will lay out more specifics and washington will be waiting to see if the confrontation continues. norah, charlie?
boehner, they have a plan when it comes to the debt ceiling. they will pass a debt ceiling, the gop will pass a debt ceiling extension for the next several months, in exchange for something to happen in the senate. what they want to have happen in the senate is the senate to pass a budget. as you might know as well, the senate has not passed a budget in several years time. so that is what that, this is negotiating point. the house says they will go ahead and do this. they will extend our debt limit, our credit limit, if you will in exchange for seeing a budget passed in the senate. now it is worth noting as you might know, charles krauthamer comes out with an editorial every week in the "washington post" and he actually wrote about this idea today in his editorial saying almost exactly the same thing. i'm going to read this part to you. the more prudent course, he is talking about the debt ceiling debate, would be to find an offer that can not be refused of the short-term tradeoff utterly unasailable and straightforward. for example, charles krauthamer writes, say, extend the debt c
not go along with speaker boehner on the compromise on increasing taxes. these guys don't care what leadership has to say about this issue. they want to shrink government. they were elected to shrink government. and whether it's defaulted, whether it's shutting down the government, whether it's allowing sequestration to kick in, they're going to make it happen in the next couple of months. and nobody knows how that will play out. >> we may just find out what happens when we reach the debt limit. jim, in spite of what the white house's grand plans for gun reform may be, there still may be not a lot of backing in congress. if you look at even republicans in the midwest and republicans in the north, how does this play out right now in congress? >> well, right. there's going to be a lot of focus on gun control. there has been since the shooting, and there will be when the president unveils his package today. i would caution people to look at the vote count inside the house republican conference. there is almost no support for doing anything on new gun control, nothing on magazine size,
